Cape Town - Proteas opening batsman, Heino Kuhn, plans to keep the same mindset and approach that has brought him success in the upcoming four-match Test series against England starting next week.

Kuhn’s debut Test call-up comes on the back of two successful seasons for the Titans and more recently for South Africa ‘A’ against the England Lions, where he finished as the standout performer in a disappointing series.

Kuhn is under no illusion of the challenges of opening in the UK, but hopes the experience of 133 first-class caps – with an impressive average of 44.71- will be an advantage he can use towards further success. He has waited a long time for the call-up, but in the process has scored nearly 10 000 runs with a high-score of 244 not out, establishing himself as a franchise veteran.
